Redrawing Gender Boundaries: How Wonder Woman’s Box Office could help change Hollywood [EDITORIAL/ARTICLE]

Many of our Goth Family know that I fight fiercely for the empowerment of women, not by diminishing men, but by arguing for the simple removal of artificial gender barriers like the glass ceiling and other cultural artifacts from the past. Without these barriers, the best person will (or at least, has a chance to) win out. We now are in a position where we can all help tear down these barriers and I believe it’s our duty to do so!
